For the price, you get a fantastic screen, camera and battery life. One of the best phones around for less than £220.

This is not to say these phones are that bad at all — especially for their price points, anyone looking to save money can find plenty to like. In the context against more expensive, higher end phones, what you pay for is faster convenience — but in the context of these two specific phones, $50 is th...

For a lot of people, a cheaper phone makes sense right now, and the new G-series phones are well-positioned to take advantage of that. They offer incredible battery life, solid performance, passable photo quality, and even a stylus if you're into that. And the G Power is still cheaper than last year...

Tom's Guide

The Moto G Power lasts even longer than its record-setting predecessor while costing the same amount. This is the budget phone to buy if you want great battery life.

This is not to say these phones are that bad at all — especially for their price points, anyone looking to save money can find plenty to like. In the context against more expensive, higher end phones, what you pay for is faster convenience — but in the context of these two specific phones, $50 is the difference between solid basics and, let’s say, the budding creative. If I had to pick, the Moto G Stylus provides more than enough incentive to make $50 extra feel like a good deal.

For a lot of people, a cheaper phone makes sense right now, and the new G-series phones are well-positioned to take advantage of that. They offer incredible battery life, solid performance, passable photo quality, and even a stylus if you're into that. And the G Power is still cheaper than last year's Moto G7. Given the choice between the two Moto phones, the Moto G Power is the winner. It's just $250 and has a larger battery than the G Stylus.

Motorola stands out from the growing crowd of budget phones by offering both an affordable price and premium features. That's not to say that the Moto G Power isn't without compromises. It doesn't have an IP rating for dust and water resistance and it lacks wireless charging and NFC. But Motorola sensibly traded away such features to keep the price low. If you're on a budget and looking for a phone with an absolutely mind-blowing battery life, the Moto G Power deserves your consideration.

Offers three-day battery life at a good price

from Wired

A $100 price jump from these Moto Gs to those Apple or Google devices is still a big one. If you're on a tight budget these phones will serve you well. Just don't expect them to last you as long as other options.

A long-lasting battery and a budget price make this a steal

from Mashable

The Moto G Power offers triple cameras, smooth performance, and a sleek design all at an affordable price. But its multi-day battery is the most impressive of all.

Heavyweight battery life

from Digital Trends

The Moto G Power is a fine phone sold at an obtainable price, but it’s niche by nature. I don’t think the crossover between “power users who need multiday battery life” and “budget phone buyers” is broad.

A bargain that does all the basics very well

from TrustedReviews

If you've got a budget of around £200 then this a great choice, it's good across the board, with an excellent battery, and a good screen. The camera is decent and very versatile, while performance matches that of other phones in the same price bracket.
